The Black Power Mixtape: 1967-1975
Göran Hugo Olsson, 2011, 97 min.
Starting in 1967 a number of journalists for Swedish television sent film crews to the United States to interview major figures in the Black Panther Party and the larger Black Power movement. Filmmaker Göran Hugo Olsson has used some of this archival footage as the basis for the documentary The Black Power Mixtape: 1967-1975 , which includes vintage interviews with Angela Davis, Eldridge Cleaver, Huey P. Newton, Stokely Carmichael, Bobby Seale, and Louis Farrakhan. The newsreels are accompanied by recent interviews with artists, activists, and cultural historians who discuss this period in American history, including Harry Belafonte, Abiodun Oyewole, Melvin Van Peebles, Erykah Badu, rapper Talib Kweli, and many others.
JUST ADDED – Q&A to follow Friday September 23rd screening: Joslyn Barnes, Black Power Mixtape Producer & Danny Glover’s producing partner!
